Internet Love Scam
I met this guy name Lee wang in Instagram. I Chatted with him for like a day and asked for my number for whatsapp. He looked like a gentleman and DECENT. Pictures of him did not look fake at all. He claimed to be an American-born SINGaporean living in California. We messaged every day, and he was caring, sweet and sincere. And I thought it might be a good guy. Talking for about a week and he said he had this contract which he had been pursuing for a long time and was asked to go for an interview the next day. And asked to wish and pray FOR HIM and would give me a surprise if he got his contract. Next day, he said that he had been awarded for the contract and he was very happy and did shopping for himself and things he needed for the contract and also took the opportunity to shop for me and would send me before he went for his contract work for 2months offshore in mexico. He asked for my full name and address. Since I was hesitant on how pricey the gifts was, I didn't give him my real name nor my address. He sent me the pictures of the gifts AND i was shocked. He said that he bought a MAC laptop,  Chanel bag, perfumes and others.

He was asked for my name and address persistently and he said it was his way of showing his appreciation to me. He did this because he cared and loved me so much. But having  known him for only a week, I doubt that was the case and it was all scam,

Later, also found many similar cases of love scams.
